I am all about taco night, but I have been on a fajita kick lately and I don't hate it. These shrimp fajita bowls are so easy, and they marry two of my other favorite Mexican recipes on the blog - cilantro lime brown rice and roasted corn salsa.
Of course, if you really only want the fajitas, you don't have to make the other two recipes, but I would be remiss if I didn't tell you to take the extra time to take these epic shrimp fajita mixture and turn it into irresistible fajita bowls!
The shrimp is marinated in zesty blend of lime juice, chili powder, cumin, oregano, and just a kiss of cayenne. If you don't want them overly spicy (or spicy at all), adjust the cayenne or leave it out all together.
Once the shrimp have gone for a little swim in the marinade, I recommend using a cast iron skillet for fajitas. The skillet holds and distributes and keeps the heat well and adds a nice flavor to the shrimps.
Like taco night, fajita night is just as fun because you can completely customize the flavors to your liking - perfect for a family or a crowd.Print
